Hispster Whale (Developer Of Crossy Road) Releases Polished Gameplay Video Of The Upcoming Pac-Man 256

There have been a lot of Pac-Man games over the years, but there are only so many ways you can tweak the "run around a maze and eat things" genre. Hipster Whale (the developer of Crossy Road) has found a new one, though. After partnering with Namco, Hipster Whale came up with Pac-Man 256, a homage to the infamous level 256 glitch in the original game. A new gameplay video is now out, and it looks awesome.

PlaceIt Creates Realistic Videos Of People Interacting With Any App In Minutes, A Great Marketing Resource For Independent Developers

These days, it takes much more to sell an app. It used to be good enough to build something that simply did what it was supposed to and didn't crash too often. Over time, users came to expect better performance, lower power consumption, and an attractive interface. Even those things aren't always good enough because many apps are presented with high quality demo videos. How can independent developers and small teams compete with companies that can pay for high-end shoots and professional models? A new service called PlaceIt might be able to help. Developers can submit screenshots or recordings to PlaceIt and have high resolution photos and videos generated on the spot, and it gives the appearance that real people are using the app.

[APK Teardown] YouTube Kids v1.12 Prepares To Add Chromecast Support And A Recording Mode For Sing-Alongs

Toddlers deserve teardowns too! Ok, maybe teardowns are still for grownups, but let's do something for those little ones that haven't learned to read xml yet. The YouTube Kids app has only been available since late February, so it's fair to expect a lot of changes and new features in each release. Last week's update brought immersive mode and better voice search, but a look inside revealed that there are some extra toys in the future. To begin with, it looks like Chromecast support is right around the corner. However, the really cool addition appears to be a built-in recording mode to capture your little one singing along to The Wheels On The Bus.

Facebook Launches Riff, A Collaborative Video-Making App That Isn't An April Fools Joke

April 1st isn't the safest time to browse tech blogs on the web. One third of all of the posts that go up are likely a fake (this one, though, is entirely legitimate). Yet while Facebook's latest app looks like it could be a joke—it isn't. Riff is a collaborative way for friends to make videos with one another using the social network.

Riff lets you shoot a clip that's up to 20 seconds long and share it for others to see. There are no editing tools, nor can you upload videos from outside of the app. You can only record, hope for the best, review the end result, and submit.

Google Play Music v5.8.1836R Adds YouTube Music Videos In Search Results [APK Download]

Play Music's v5.8 rolled out last month with a slew of fixes and improvements to make the app fit better with Material Design's guidelines and provide some added functionality like biography and history for artists, and a previous song button in the collapsed notification. The app has since seen a few incremental changes, but the latest v5.8.1836R got a rare treatment from Google: an official changelog. So it must be something important, right?

[APK Teardown] YouTube v10.0 Set To Bring Video Filters And A Participants View For Live Chats

YouTube has always been one of Google's less conventional properties, but the sudden leap from version 6.0 to 10.0 gave everybody a surprise. Even stranger is that with such a substantial jump in versions, there are virtually zero meaningful changes to the user-facing features. While there's relatively little for us to enjoy right now, a full teardown reveals that there are at least a few additions that might be worthy of a major version bump.

TuneIn Radio has been around long before Google's little dongle, but its support is only now trickling in.
